6/21/13 June Key Largo Tarpon Fishing

Well the june key largo tarpon fishing is still happening.  Fishing is not quite what it was in the spring but still a mix of migrating fish with plenty of locals.  We had some action in the backcountry a few days ago fishing them around flamingo channels and the surronding area.  Mostly fishing fresh dead mullet.  Today we ran back near key largo and fished some of the local channels and caught a big tarpon as well as a ‘mud marlin.’  A couple evenings ago we also had 2 bites and caught 1 big tarpon in the same area.  In the backcountry the tarpon fishing can get good in a hurry though can turn off just as quick.  There is still plenty of action fishing for trout, snappers, ladyfish, etc…  Some snook have been off the shorelines of the mainland and some of the backcountry creeks and moats.  A few redfish can be found in the super skinny water too.61913poon
